CLIMBTALK - Accomplished big waller, former YOSAR member, certified rock climbing guide Denver native Mike Donaldson talks about rescuing Hans Florine off the The Big Stone, climbing in California and guiding in Boulder. Accomplished boulderer Patrick Aschwanden talked about adventuring in the desert and climbing in Eldorado Spring, west of Boulder. Fritz Sperry, author and avalanche expert sheds light on our current high avalanche danger in the High Country and the necessary 4 elements. Taylor Reed from the Beta Angels talked about putting more 'science in climbing'. His, BARI Beta Angel Research Inventory .beta-angel.com/ is a great source for climbers. Shane Leva, avalanche expert and AMGA guide from Mountain Chalet in Colorado Springs talked about the avalanche danger in the Pikes Peak region and how Mountain Chalet 50 years in the outdoor industry, has been actively involved in Community building and the via ferratas in Manitou Springs, Ouray, Royal Gorge Bridge & Park and the closure of Ute Pass bouldering, west of town. Tenny Ostrem along with thru-hiking pal Claire, walked the U.S. Mexico border 1900 miles from San Diego to Brownsville Texas, the first thru-hike of the border, alone. Their 1900 mile adventure on foot in 175 days is a cool testament to following one’s passion and sense of what’s possible.
